Ambassador Rice Asks Not To Be Considered For Secretary Of State

The White House just released a statement from the president that says, in part:
“Today, I spoke to Ambassador Susan Rice, and accepted her decision to remove her name from consideration for Secretary of State. For two decades, Susan has proven to be an extraordinarily capable, patriotic, and passionate public servant. As my Ambassador to the United Nations, she plays an indispensable role in advancing America‘s interests. …
“I am grateful that Susan will continue to serve as our Ambassador at the United Nations and a key member of my cabinet and national security team, carrying her work forward on all of these and other issues. …
“While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character, and an admirable commitment to rise above the politics of the moment to put our national interests first. The American people can be proud to have a public servant of her caliber and character representing our country.”
NBC News broke the story, minutes before the White House statement was released, reporting that:
“Embattled U.N. envoy Susan Rice is dropping out of the running to be the next secretary of state after months of criticism over her Benghazi comments, she told NBC News on Thursday.
” ‘If nominated, I am now convinced that the confirmation process would be lengthy, disruptive and costly — to you and to our most pressing national and international priorities,’ Rice wrote in a letter to President Obama, saying she’s saddened by the partisan politics surrounding her prospects.”
Rice has been the target of sharp criticism from many Republicans because of what they have charged were misleading statements she made in the days after the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, in which the ambassador and three other Americans were killed. Critics say she downplayed the role that terrorists played. The administration says she relied on information provided by the intelligence community.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has said she plans to step down sometime in the coming months. Among others thought to be leading contenders for the job is Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass.

Now that the official news is supplied for you, lets get down to the real reason Ambassador Rice has been degraded in the press and on Capital Hill.
Pure and blatant racism.
It started with false and unfounded allegations against Attorney General Eric Holder. The Reich wing TeaTardedRepubliCANTS forged ahead against AG Holder with a flimsy assed attempt to tie him into George Dubbya Bush’s Fast and Furious operation, which allowed weapons into Mexico from America. The Fast and Furious operation was conceived and started during Dubbya’s administration, AND STOPPED UNDER THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.
Fast forward to this fake ass Benghazi scandal. Ambassador Rice goes on a Sunday morning political talk show to discuss the assassinations in Benghazi, to relay the intelligence report that the White House has received from the “intelligence” community. That information is upgraded on an hourly & daily basis as it is uncovered during any investigation.
What she said on that Sunday morning talk-fest was no longer valid 25 minutes later because as new information/intelligence is uncovered, the old intelligence/information is updated. Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice HAD NO INVOLVEMENT IN BENGHAZI WHAT SO EVER!
Based on THAT flimsy ass reason, unimportant old assed racist caucasian politicians in D.C., refused to endorse or confirm a possible candidate for the office of Secretary Of State….BEFORE SHE WAS EVEN NOMINATED. The TeaTardedRepubliCANTS falsely think they have say so in choosing whom the President nominates for HIS Presidential cabinet.
BEFORE THE PRESIDENT EVEN NOMINATES THEM.
Now I shall play the race card: AG Holder & Ambassador Rice are both Black Americans.
AG Holder & Ambassador Rice were both crucified by a racist caucasian element in Washington over fake, false, pseudo issues that had jack shit to do with them.
Why? Because for the first time in American history, America would have had a Black American President in Barack Hussein Obama. A Black American Attorney General in Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. and a Black American Secretary Of State in Ambassador Susan Elizabeth Rice.
A First for America.
I am tired of old crusty ass racist caucasian males, and a few racist weak confused caucasian women, taking the forward advancement of America backwards and reversing years of civil rights accomplishments.
I’d personally like to line every racist obstructionist of all skin colors who occupy an elected office in the House Of Congress in Washington….stand them up against an old musty garage wall on the South Side of Chicago…..and…..
Well you get my drift.
Whether you agree with my desires to rid America of evil racist TeaTardedRepubliCANTS or not, you will agree that racism is killing America’s readily available pool of talent.
Who in America really wants to serve in public office, serve “We The People”, if you have a cross-hairs on your back, if your back happens to be anything but caucasian.
John Kerry? Really? Really??
Never accept anyone The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBT Anti-Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRA-Gun Loving Nut Bag racist caucasian Party wants to shove down your throat.
John Kerry? Seriously?? Endorsed by: The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBT Anti-Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRA-Gun Loving Nut Bag racist caucasian Party.
Because his confirmation by the Congressional committee, as Secretary Of State, were he nominated, means his Senate seat in Massachusetts will be vacant and up for special election. The TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian Psycho-Sexual Secret-Whore Pro-caucasian Pro-Racist Anti-LGBT Anti-Feminist Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative NRA-Gun Loving Nut Bag racist caucasian Party loves that scenario.
That garage idea sounds better & better.

I am appreciative in ways you can’t imagine for all the wonderful new people I have met in the past 12 months. Most very good solid intelligent informed like minded people who I am thrilled to have met and interacted with over the past year.
To those who are the exact opposite of intelligent, informed, like minded and wonderful, I appreciate you as well, just in different ways and for far different reasons.
Thank you to everyone and here’s a tall iced glass of mango sweet tea toast to one more year telling the truth, spreading the facts, and pissing off racist caucasians, TeaTardedRepubliCANTS and those who chose to oppress.
I want to wish everybody & your families a wonderfully joyous Kwanzaa, Christmas & Hanukkah & a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year.

Hat Tip/Shout Out To The Obama Dairy
The Ohio woman whose name become a rallying cry for President Obama in his fight for health care reform finally came to the White House on Wednesday to see a letter that she wrote, framed and placed on a West Wing wall outside the Oval Office. Natoma Canfield wrote to Obama in 2010 about her battle with cancer and how she could no longer afford to pay insurance premiums. He cited her letter as one of his inspirations while pushing for health care reform, called her after the Supreme Court upheld the law and met her for the first time in July this year. Obama promised at that meeting that Canfield, at right above, could come to the White House and see the letter.

President Obama Talks Middle-Class Tax Cuts with Mayors and Their Constituents
B y Ms. Megan Slack December 12, 2012 The White House Blog
Today, President Obama held a conference call with a bipartisan group of mayors and community leaders from around the country to discuss preventing an income tax increase on middle-class families. Several of the mayors asked some of their constituents who had shared what a $2,000 tax increase next year would mean for their familes to join the call as well.
There’s A New Sheriff In Town BOYS!!
Republicans have long derided Elizabeth Warren for describing herself as an intellectual godmother of Occupy Wall Street. Now the intellectual godmother of Occupy Wall Street will occupy the Senate committee that oversees it.
The Senate Democratic leadership is announcing that Warren will be given a seat on the Senate Banking Committee. As Forbes put it recently, Warren’s ascent to the Senate alone was “Wall Street’s worst nightmare.” This could make that nightmare a good deal worse.
Warren’s appointment to the Banking Committee was expected; Ryan Grim broke the news some time ago. But today’s announcement will make it official.
